Love is not a feeling but an Action!

I remember the feeling, the sweaty palms, my heart racing, goosebumps. It felt right, so I said it, "I love you". How many times I jumped the gun. Rather than see how this person would treat me I raced to the conclusion that I loved them based on these feelings. There have been several who were special in my life but as the Years have passed and much water under the bridge, I have come to realize what love really is. I have watched my wife stand by me when I am down. I have watched her tirelessly working to ensure our family is taken care of. She is strong when I need and gentle and loving for us all. Her dedication and support inspires me to be a better man. I am still learning what love really is but I now know what it isnt. I truly hope my children experience the thrill of connection and many times I still get giddy when I am with my wife but LOVE is what we do, not what we feel.

"Love is what is left, when after, 'Being in love', has burned away"

Happy Valentines Day
for the love of my life

You can delete this afterward, if you like, but, I thought you might like to see my response to yours and Evo's conversation at SI. (John moderates my comments, so they don't always get published quickly)

Evo said to you:

“What does a deist base his or her asserted knowledge on?”

What John is trying to say, in his unique and malevolently-biased way, is that HE hasn’t experienced anything like what he’s saying others claim to have, nor has HE seen any evidence of God’s interaction with man… THEREFORE, it’s just not possible that these things could ever be. HE is the only qualified expert on the subject, and you’d damned well better accept that. It’s a popular and worn-out ANTI-THEIST line of reasoning.

Of course, reality is that others can and often do experience things that HE never has. As incomprehensible as that is, (to him) it’s just a fact of life… along with the fact that HE wasn’t around to verify most of the things that HE accepts as undeniable truth about Darwinism, evolution, etc. The common denominator in all of them is that they oppose a creationist view, which is all that matters to him.

Very sweet...

I hate you...(because YOU are in love)

I hate Valentine's Day more....(gag me...)

Next year will be better. Do you have any men out there? The gene pool in Maui is slim....lets trade places for a week or so, maybe then I will have an attitude adjustment!

Oh Happy Day!

One of you isn't covering their face, and rightfully so.
